Drain the coolant and fill with water and about a half cup of tide powder detergent, run the bike a while and drain, you will have to flush with water several times to remove all detergent before refilling with coolant.

I take it you mean the radiator tank ?. I think the best thing to do is take it to a radiator repair shop where it can be reversed flushed cleaned and flow tested . Some times the core must be replaced.

Radiator fans

I dont know what year model you have but the newer one will run when car is turned off to cool radiator. Maybe you have a radiator problem if this just started to happen. Is the car over heating. Did you check radiator fluid or thermostat. I dont know much about your car and year model but i would do these checks. Maybe radiator needs to be flushed. You can use aluminum brite for to flush. Can buy it at O Reiley's. I had to flush my daughters radiator about 10 times when we bought it used, fithy. Looks brand new. Please dispose of chemicals properly. It is an acid.

Need to change radiator dont know how to remove it

You shouldn't have to remove A/C lines. The A/C lines you are seeing go to the A/C condensor that is in front of, but seperate from the radiator. The metal lines attached to the radiator go to the transmission. The transmission cooler is built in to the radiator.

Car keep running hot I put new themostat

replace the temperature sensor (should be located on the intake, usually on the driver side). If the sensor is bad, then the reading will be wrong - as long as you dont' hear the boiling, or see steam coming from the radiator, or anywhere else, you'll be fine. However, I suggest also checking both top and bottom radiator hoses, heater core hoses. Also, make sure your air filter is clean.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Radiator system is spraying steam out once it heats up I dont know anything about the coolant system and dont know if its the radiator or the hoses or if it could be anything else.

Firstly check from where the steam is coming out from.
Is it from the top radiator cap???... then its loose just tighten it...
Is it from the hose.... lower hose or upper hose.... change it.
worst case if it is from the radiator itself.....
Whatever you do... please dont go for a long drive till this is fixed....
Till you get it fixed please top the radiator with clean water else the engine will cease...

Toyota hilux 3l motor overheating

Dont Laugh.. But Heres I I check'em: Open the radiator cap or coolant tank if radiator cap isnt applicable. Then sniff the coolant.. If It smell like gas vapors.. Then its Definitely a blown/cracked head or gasket..( usually a gasket ) They make test kits for that. But save ya money.. the nose is cheaper.. Thanx.. PS Make sure engine is cool when ya do this..
